Honda Accord VTEC Solenoid Gaskets Replacement
In this video I show you how to replace both VTEC solenoid valve gaskets
(valve to cylinder head and solenoid to valve) on 1994-1997 Accords.
This is a common cause of oil leaks on the upper passenger side of the
engine next to the distributor shaft seal, distributor o ring, and valve
It seems the same engineers who buried the Accords fuel filter also decided
to make the VTEC solenoid valve difficult to remove as well. One of the
bolts for the valve is buried so deep you have to partially drain the
cooling system and use a u-joint to get it out.
I take your through the process step by step from removal of all the parts
to re installation.
This video ran a bit longer than I wanted it to but considering how
deceptively easy this job looks at first glance (until you can't get that
one remaining hidden bolt on the valve off to remove it) I decided to leave
in as much detail as possible.
You will need to add new coolant and bleed the cooling system to avoid
engine damage after you're done. If you need that info here is the link to
my cooling system bleeding video.
Honda part numbers used in the video:
Solenoid to valve gasket: 36172-P0A-005
VTEC valve to cylinder head gasket: 15825-P0A-015
VTEC oil pressure switch o-ring: 91319-PR3-003
Thermostat housing to intake gasket: 91312-P0A-000
Thermostat housing to connecting pipe o-ring: 91314-PH7-003
These part numbers should work on all 1994-1997 Accords with VTEC but as
always check with your dealer to confirm these part numbers will work with

Small Block Valve Cover Gaskets
Small Block Valve Cover Gaskets.Just a look at how I replace valve cover
gaskets. One of the main things do not over tighten.Some aftermarket valve
covers for small block chevy`s are thicker and will not bend or flex as
much as stock small block chevy gaskets do. I use a little RTV on the valve
cover side .Do not use to much RTV ,or it will squeeze in to the small

adjustability to a whole new level. These premium die-cast aluminum valve
covers are available in 5 different styles including polished, chome, and

Worried about leaks...never fear because we've taken care of that too.
The flat, held in-place, gasket is mostly covered on the inside of the
valve cover by an overlap from the top piece to the bottom piece.

Investigating Chevy 305 burning oil at idle
[[UPDATE: after wasting money on valve stem seals without fully
investigating what the issue definitely was, i finally took off the right
side valve cover which has NEVER been taken off..i found the the rear oil
drain hole (theres 2, 1 in the front 1 in the back of the head) was plugged
with fiber which is from the 10 year old air filter i had been using..so
basically the ENTIRE valve cover was filling with oil force feeding oil
into the cylinders. Goes to show, routine maintenance is not a joke..i
figured an air filter is an air filter, but i guess not lol.After 10
minutes of idling the Exhaust will
start making blue smoke and it looks kinda like "Uncle Buck" lol. It VERY
rarely smokes when i drive, only when i take off.

This is what clothes pins are really used for, helping hold a wrinkled

Astra Turbo - Rocker Cover Gasket Renewal
My first video, it's a bit slow and boring. But was a good test.
On an engine with hydraulically adjusted valve clearance, the rocker cover
gasket may never get changed in routine maintenance.
The gasket on this car hasn't been changed for 120,000km's and was leaking
New gasket = cleaner engine bay :)
